Police say the man who killed a hip-hop musician and severely injured his bandmate Monday morning had help committing the crime.
A teen who knew Matthew Denholm’s intentions and did not attempt to stop him was arrested Monday evening, said Capt. Ken Clark of the Berea Police Department.
Randall James Burgess Jr., 18, also is accused of allowing Denholm to use his vehicle, which was the car Denholm was driving when he was apprehended, he said.
“He was trying to report his vehicle as stolen,” Clark said.
Burgess was one of the people questioned after police finished collecting evidence at the scene of the crime, an apartment in the Oliver building on Chestnut Street. During questioning, police realized Burgess had “a little more to do with it than he was letting on,” Clark said.
Burgess is charged with facilitation to murder, attempted murder and second-degree burglary. He remains in the Madison County Detention Center on a $100,000 bond.
